This semester will begin with a deep dive into all things 1980’s including shoulder pads, pastel eyeshadow, and ill-fitting suits, as well as understanding historical events such as the Russel St bombing, Haley’s Comet, and Lindy Chamberlain’s missing baby girl. While Kate is excited to relive her childhood, the medium for this exploration into the greatest decade of the 20th century will be via the ABC’s award winning ‘The Newsreader’. Students will study film techniques, journalism and media studies, laced with a solid dose of home-grown social studies. There will be 80’s Pop and we will all be better off because of it.
